A forum focused on our water supply – including who decides how it’s used – will be hosted by The League of Women Voters of Northeastern Connecticut (formerly the League of Women Voters of Mansfield) and the Connecticut Institute of Water Resources (CIWR at UConn) on Monday, July 29 from 7-9 p.m. at the Elks Lodge (lower level), located at 198 Pleasant St. in Willimantic.
This event is free and open to the public.
The “Regional Water: Where Is It? Who Uses It? Who Decides?” program will be wide-ranging and fast-paced, with three different panel discussions:
- Regional Water Resources,
- Regional Water Systems, and
- Water, Economic Development and Regional Planning
Panelists include water experts from the University of Connecticut, representatives from Windham Water Works, CT Water Company and representatives from the Economic Development Commissions of Windham, Tolland and Mansfield.
Members of each panel will give very brief presentations, with most of the time allotted to answering written questions from the audience.
